Netflix has been working just fine until this evening. Now, I cannot log in at all. I have checked my username and password by logging in on my computer, iphone and ipad. Instant Watch works just fine on those devices. When I go to log in, it gives me a "cannot configure device" error. So far, I have reset it multiple times (menu + down and unplugging), and did a "restore", which updated the software (not that it needed it).

I have no idea what could be wrong with it. YouTube, iTunes, etc. all work on the Apple TV.

Anyone else having problems?

Same problem here....

A couple of hours ago I called Netflix and there was a voice message stating that Netflix was aware they are having issues. The greeting did not even allow connection to a live operator....so I'm guessing they are swamped.

It's not a problem with the ATV2.

Just do a hard reset (pull out the power cable, then plug it back in). This should resolve the issue.

It started working again later that day (9th). This morning, the same issue. Maybe they can't handle all of these new ATV owners.
